Deborah Lutz is an artist, museum educator, and adjunct instructor in studio art. Both a figurative and abstract artist working in ink and traditional and nontraditional materials and processes, she investigates perception and the formal act of making a drawing. She teaches Seeing through Drawing, a process-based drawing class for people with low vision and blindness for the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and she has expertise in verbal description as an approach for accessing art. She was a panel member and workshop leader for the Thinking through Drawing October 2021 symposium entitled “Unlocking—Rethinking through Drawing.” In 2019, her drawing about perception, Tentative Sight, was exhibited in the Painting Center’s Patterns of Influence group show. For the 2012 NAEA conference, she was a panelist for the discussion called “Seeing through Drawing; Touch, Drawing, and Mental Imagery in People with and without Visual Impairments.” Lutz received her MFA from the New York Academy of Figurative Art. She lives and works between both coasts.
